Third-party testing confirms Belkin routers outperform competitors


Belkin announced the results of benchmark performance
tests of its latest router lineup. The Tolly Group found that Belkin’s N150,
N300, and N600 DB together averaged a 68 percent performance improvement across
all tested products, while the flagship N750 DB tested concurrent Wi-Fi and WAN
speeds of up to 900Mbps.


The N150, N300, and N600 DB routers were tested for speed
at distance and test results show that Belkin routers have a significant
advantage at maintaining higher network speeds over greater distances in the
home. Competitors’ routers begin to lose signal strength more rapidly after 30
feet, but Belkin routers across the board maintain
higher speeds even at distances greater than 60 feet, which in a home
environment means you get better Wi-Fi coverage even multiple rooms away from
the router’s location.


For the N750 DB router, the Tolly Group focused on
processing power and the ability to maintain network performance while running
multiple high-bandwidth applications. A test using simultaneous bidirectional
throughput of the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands with WAN port download traffic in a
single location at 15 feet showed concurrent Wi-Fi and WAN speeds topping twice
that of other major brands at more than 900Mbps and network download speeds at
almost double the competition. For consumers this translates to more consistent
network speeds and an ability to download and stream content without
sacrificing the speed or quality of either activity.


“Router speed and processor performance rank high on
consumers’ list of most valuable features for routers, especially as they begin
to add multiple devices and stream high bandwidth content over their home
networks. We went to great lengths to ensure our MultiBeam technology provides
performance improvements over our competition, and we’re thrilled that The
Tolly Group results validate our efforts,” said Mike Chen, networking
general manager, Belkin.


“We put Belkin’s routers through real-world testing
scenarios and the results show a clear competitive advantage over other leading
brands. While each Belkin router logged performance improvements over competing
products, the combined result of faster download speeds and two times faster
concurrent Wi-Fi and WAN speeds for the Belkin N750 DB really set that router
apart,” said Kevin Tolly, founder, Tolly Group.
